Modules

Steel Casting Alloys

This module explores how steel is made and identifies the differences between cast iron and steel. The different steel alloy types and properties are explained. By the end of this module, you will be able to explain the chief properties and types of steel, as well as what properties distinguish it from cast iron. (0.1 CEU)

ACCESS THIS MODULE
Steel Casting Defects: Shrinkage

In this module, the two types of steel shrinkage defects: macro and micro shrinkage porosity (voids) are explored. This module also identifies control measures to reduce or eliminate shrinkage defects. By the end of this module, you will be able to define macro and micro shrinkage porosity (voids) defects in steel and identify two control methods to reduce the defects. (0.1 CEU)

ACCESS THIS MODULE
Steel Casting Production

This module explores the steel casting process including: optimizing a design; patternmaking; mold and core making; melting and pouring; and cleaning and inspection. By the end of this module, you will be able to describe the main principles and features of the metalcasting and molding processes of steel. (0.1 CEU)

ACCESS THIS MODULE
Steel Casting Quality Requirements and Inspection Methods

In this module, the two types of steel inspection methods and the different types of chemical composition tests are identified. By the end of this module, you will be able to identify industry requirements and standards for inspections and welding repairs and describe features of the chemical and mechanical testing of steel. (0.1 CEU)

ACCESS THIS MODULE
Introduction to Steel Heat Treatments

In this module, steel heat treatment is defined and the basic steps to heat treating steel are identified. The following heat treatment techniques are introduced: annealing, normalizing, quenching, tempering, austempering, precipitation hardening, solution treating, and stress relieving. By the end of this module, you will be able to describe the various heat treatment processes and procedures for steel. (0.1 CEU)

ACCESS THIS MODULE
Steel Casting Defects: Oxides and Inclusions

This module will explore oxides and inclusions that affect steel castings. This module will review the source of each of these defects and measures to take to control these defects. By the end of this module, you will be able to identify oxides and inclusions, how to determine the source, and how to prevent them. This module will also give you the opportunity to document causes of inclusions by working through a case study. (0.1 CEU)
